After a dangerous sea crossing and a stay in a camp in Malaysia, young Vietnamese Tinh and her family are accepted as refugees in Canada and arrive in Granby, where they begin their new life. But for Tinh, adapting has its share of difficulties. Already shy and reserved by nature, she has to learn a new language and integrate into her new environment. Haunted by the hardships of her journey, Tinh will have to dig deep within herself for the resilience she needs to survive and thrive.
